The study of CHP ISCO (catalyzed H202 propagations in situ chemical oxidation) demonstrates that is it characterized by more complex chemistry than previously conceived. In particular, superoxide has a major role in the degradation of highly oxidized contaminants, the destruction of DNAPLs, and enhanced desorption of hydrophobic contaminants from soils and subsurface solids. The suite of reactive oxygen species generated in CHP reactions, including hydroxyl radical, superoxide, and the strong...

For years, Services organizations have operated dining facilities with little change to strategic direction for the type of operation they should implement. Contracts, regardless of type, often run on auto pilot. Organizations renew the contracts when their option years run out with little change or modification to the contract. The only thing that seems to change is the ever increasing price of the contract and perhaps the contractor. This analysis will attempt to provide a framework for...

Ocean wave characteristics in the western Atlantic Ocean (Hurricane Region) to tropical cyclones have been well identified, but not the regional seas in the western Pacific, e.g., the South China Sea (Typhoon Region). This is due to the lack of observational and modeling studies in the regional seas of the western Pacific. To fill this gap, Wavewatch-III (WW3) is used to study the response of the South China Sea (SCS) to Typhoon Muifa (2004). The major purposes are to find the similarity and...

This thesis studied the retention of United States Naval Academy Voluntary Graduate Education Program (VGEP) and Scholarship participants in graduating classes of 1983-1998. The comparison group of non-participants consisted of USNA graduating classes 1983-1998 with an Academic Quality Point Rating (AQPR) comparable to the early graduate education students. AQPR was used in order to make the academic backgrounds similar for the participants and non-participants. The retention behavior of...

Exsanguination is the leading cause of death on the battlefield. Lifesaving interventions include arresting hemorrhage and initiating resuscitation. The ideal resuscitation of combat casualties has not been determined. Delaying resuscitation has been shown to be beneficial in some settings and anesthetics utilized can have a profound effect on the resuscitation. The goal of this proposal is to determine the ideal resuscitation regimen of swine undergoing a Grade V liver injury followed by 30...

Prostate Cancer (PCa) accounts for nearly 30% of all newly diagnosed cancers among American men. Epidemiologic studies suggest that dietary factors may be important in the etiology of this disease. The objective of our research is to determine how nutritional compounds genistein, betasitosterol (SIT), and omega-6 fatty acids (FA) function as modulators of PCa. In the third and final year of this fellowship, the fellow joined the National Cancer Institute's Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program...

To advance naval capabilities in identifying buried mines and unexploded ordnance, hybrid systems that fuse data from disparate sensors are being developed. This paper describes preliminary results of a classification engine that combines target features and classification parameters from a synthetic aperture Buried Object Scanning Sonar (BOSS) and an electromagnetic Real-time Tracking Gradiometer (RTG). The target characteristics that generate signals of interest for these sensors (acoustic...

The United States Army's One Semi-Automated Forces (OneSAF) Objective System (OOS) is the next generation of Army high resolution combat models. Its development has leveraged the ever-increasing computing power available today to represent highly complex battlefield phenomena, particularly human behavior. In the fall of 2005, the Product Manager (PM) OneSAF asked us to conduct a verification of the orderable, composite behavior models within OOS. As a result, we developed and executed a unique...
